Adjusting to Parenthood is a new mom support group, offering additional support for the emotional changes and challenges of adapting to parenthood. If you could use a little extra support in addition to your PEPS Group, consider attending one of these drop-in sessions, which are facilitated by professional therapists.

Becoming a new parent can be overwhelming, and it often takes time to adjust to changed roles and unfamiliar experiences. Good support can help ease the transition, especially if it provides a place for new mothers to come together and express the reality of how hard parenthood can be.

Mom and baby snuggling

Adjusting to Parenthood groups are a place for women to feel heard and to be honest about the highs and lows of motherhood. It offers a supportive environment in which the full range of postpartum experiences is welcomed, and the everyday realities of being a new mom are understood.

These group are appropriate for any mother who needs support, to vent, to process, to hear other women's stories, and to learn that she is not alone. Expectant mothers, babies, and partners welcome. These groups are open to any mother in the community.  If there is no PEPS affiliation, we do ask for a $10 donation per meeting, pay as you can.
